Cameco’s stock on the Toronto Stock Exchange, symbol CCO, broke out on the chart on Friday, cresting through the CAD$24.50 resistance level.
Cameco, despite being the industry leader in terms of uranium production, has been the laggard stock in the uranium sector. The intermediate and even junior producers – notably low-grade producers Paladin Energy (PDN-TSX)and Uranium One (UUU-TSX) – have been in a steady uptrend for weeks.
The uranium price has posted two consecutive “up” weeks, with gains of $1.50 and 50 cents through mid-April.

Mega Uranium (MGA-TSX; $2) also has roughly 40 million pounds of compliant resources, though spread over several projects. They have a very strong financial management team, and have more than $40 million cash. Their key assets are in
There are many other uranium companies with interesting stories – these four are some of the more advanced explorers and developers which should benefit from the next layer of investor attention that the uranium sector gets.
And now that Cameco has broken out on the charts, that next layer is happening now.
